Hannibal van der Kust Coromandel1
M, #16228, b. circa 1681
|BirthOrigin*||Hannibal was from the Coromandel Coast and was perhaps born there circa 1681. He was said to be 5 years old in 1696 - however, I believe this to be a transcribal error on the part of Böeseken and that he was more likely to have been around 15 years old. It was highly unlikely that a 11-year-old boy would have impregnated a women in early 1702.1|
|Marriage De facto*||Circa 1701 Hannibal van der Kust Coromandel and Rachael van der Kust Coromandel were in a de facto relationship. The couple baptised a son, Adriaan in 1702.|
